This looked so much like a gargoyle to me I had to laugh…till I get myself a good fungus and mushroom ID book, I dont know what this cool thing is…growing out of a Birch tree.

Thanks Carla for offering these… possibly a Birch Polypore…or maybe even an Artist’s Conk.

    This guy is a hoot & a half. Don’t let him fool you; he’s just a Birch Monster. Great catch; should think about putting him into the Accidental Images group.

  • Thanks Shelia!! I can’t see it as anything but a gargoyle now…it’s fixed in my brain, and I’m not afraid of him even though he looks scary! lol!! I love the angry eye, the heavy brow bones and the jagged mouth!!….maybe I should check out that group! :]
